College basketball: No. 1 Duke rallies past Texas in overtime; No. 2 Arizona loses third in a row

Freshman Marvin Bagley III had a career-high 34 points and added 15 rebounds, and No. 1 Duke rallied to defeat Texas 85-78 in overtime on Friday to reach the final of the PK80 Invitational in Portland, Ore.

Gary Trent Jr. added 17 points for the Blue Devils (7-0), who trailed by 16 in the second half and had to play five freshmen once senior Grayson Allen fouled out.

Dylan Osetkowski had 19 points for Texas (4-1), which fell short of its first-ever victory over a top-ranked team.

Bagley made consecutive dunks to give the Blue Devils a 78-73 lead in overtime. After Andrew Jones’ layup pulled Texas within 78-77 with 1:20 left, Wendell Carter’s put-back dunk pushed Duke’s lead to 82-78 and Trent’s free throws with 11 seconds left sealed the win.

Bagley tied the Blue Devils’ freshman scoring record set by J.J. Reddick on Jan. 15, 2003 against Virginia. He’s the first Duke freshman to have five double-doubles over his first seven games.
